Lacey Jane Roberts

Originally uploaded by notionnanny
Lacey Jane Roberts recently graduated from California College of Art with an MFA in Textiles and an MA in Visual Criticism. On the heels of their decision to drop the "Craft" from their name, Lacey created a guerilla installation on the façade of the building replacing her own knitted version of the word. Her recent ambitious and strikingly beautiful piece "We couldn’t get in. We couldn’t get out." consisted of a huge hot pink, knitted barbed wire fence. At the Day of Demonstrations, Lacey brought her Cool Corder Knitting Crank & Barbie Knit Magic machines from the 1970's. Check out her website at
